Come out to the Jam Session, hosted by CAB, in the Wallace Student Center on March 17th, 2016 at 8pm. Xzavier Williams, a returning participant of the Jam Sessions believes, “ the overall talent that comes out is very good and it is a lot of fun to watch the talent. It is also a lot of fun to meet new people and hang out with friends.” Xzavier loves to sing, and perform songs that he has written himself. If you enjoy singing or even just playing an instrument this is a great event to network and socialize with other talented students.

Last Thursday, the CAB Concerts Committee hosted the second Jam Session of the semester in Shouse Dining Hall, where students gathered to sing their best karaoke! Whether singing solo or with friends, participants gave it their all as they shared songs from a variety of genres, including pop, soul, hip hop, and contemporary worship music. Students often comment that they love the relaxed atmosphere of the jam sessions, because it gives them a chance to socialize while enjoying
some of Campbell’s hidden talent. They love it when they see their friends and classmates go onstage, and are always supportive in giving a hearty round of applause to everyone who performs!

Last March Campbell students learned Salsa by coming to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus. Students were taught basic moves and rhythms of salsa dance. Students came to the class in order to learn salsa dance moves for many different reasons. Salsa dance roots are based on Puerto Rican rhythms, Cuban Son, and San Montuno. However, the dance and music is always evolving. There are many different types of salsa dance based on the area they come from. In many styles of salsa dancing, as a dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. Salsa dance came to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus.

“I’m fascinated with Latin culture and I have a bicultural family so I’m really interested in Latin dance” said Audrey Jordan, a Freshman International Business and Spanish major.
Remember to take part in the unique activities that Campbell has to offer throughout the semester. There are numerous activities such as dance class, bacon day, pumpkin carving, and even speed dating.
